The Catastrophe - Poem by Jr. Cuyam

After too long years of happiness,
Happened the unexpected scripted mess.
The radiant face of my golden city,
Have lost its fascinating quality.
The rivers became angry
and their catastrophic sound,
brought great disaster to the town.
The mighty water swelled,
And all its strength was but a plethoric thrill.
Her boastful streets that always
emitting sound emotions
Became a grieving avenue as an accolade
of humiliation.
The saddest song was heard
across the nation, sang by the choir of wind
of elegy and lamentation.
But the raging water was but a blister,
A disastrous warning from
the All-things Maker.

    Beautiful poetry, nice rhythm to it, a petition to save the land we call home. I felt it for certain.

    Keep writing
